    I grew up with Sherrie, Teresa and Rob. We were on opposite sides of the city block with the Walls family on the same block. Sherrie and Rhea Dawn Walls (Sons) were best friends and a few years older than the rest of us. It was nothing for Sherrie or Rhea Dawn to get the car and ALL (Rhonda Walls, Teresa King, Ranae Walls, Chris Bradford, Denise Hicks and who ever else wanted to join) to pile into the car. We would cruise Bedford, rural roads, go to the Holiday Drive-In on car load night. We had such fun! Rob was too young to tag along. After Sherrie and Tim married they lived in a house by their parents and brought little Timmy and Kayla to swim at my parent's house. We had a great neighborhood! I am so glad Kayla organized Sherrie's birthday parade. She looked so happy that day! I am so thankful to have spent time visiting with her. I am praying for Kayla and Rob as they go through this very difficult time. Please call if I can help with anything.

    We shared some great times at casino, that's what she loved to do. The best time was talking and sharing stories on the way there and back, my BFF was also a big part of her life, we called ourselves the 3 Amigo's, we had matching Amigo T shirts we wore there, she is missed very much, but not in pain now. RIP my friend
